I won't be looking at getting a new camera body till around April possibly. If the K3 body can be had for under $1000 (which is looking kind of likely at this point) then I will probably strongly consider it.

Used K-3 on "Amazon Warehouse Deals" is going for less than 1K now... 994.25 + free shipping.
I need to pay my taxes. The price on this needs to go back up so I'm not tempted. 10% amazon wedding registry discount… $200 or so in amazon gift cards sitting on my desk… just sold my backup nikon body and nikon sigma 10-20 lens for about 450…. so much temptation.

Side note: Warehouse Deals are usually an excellent buy. I purchased an $800 Weber grill over the summer for $625 and the only problem was a dent/tear in the cardboard of the box that was only an inch or so deep and didn't touch anything inside the box. Still had full warranty.

Huh...wat just happened to K3 deals on Amazon. Prices gone back up to 1300 bucks now! Wild swings...looks like low on k3 inventory or Ricoh protested MAP violations on Amazon?

Amazon moves there prices constantly. Sometimes even offering different prices to different people at the same time.

Looks like it's back up to full price for now.

how do they decide this? i can't see someone paying $1,300 when it was almost $1,000. Though i must admit I feel a little like I missed the boat on this, though I am sure it will come back down soon enough.

Now they have gotten your attention, set a certain expectation, and one day when you see it for 1000-1100 you will strike. Other people don't know any better and might take it for 1300.

A lot of those eager k3 buyers are fellow forum members. As each one of us can testify we dont like paying the full price...

It looks like the price hike might be because amazon went out of stock as the first party seller and the current price is set by a third party.

CamelCamelCamel is a cool site which lets you track the amazon price of products and you can set it to email you or tweet you when an item is available at a price you want.

I saw a K3 body only deal on gearshop . dpreview.com at 1060 2 days ago. But now I see it is back up 1112. Is that a precursor to CP+ 2014 ?

Good for ya! Your experience has been interesting purchasing a K3, then cancelling, then purchasing and then getting the difference refunded You must be helluva happy with the K3 though!
